After four days, former Vice President Joe Biden has been named President-Elect. After being declared the winner of Pennsylvania, several news outlets named Biden the projected winner. With 290 electoral votes, Biden was named President-Elect on Saturday afternoon. His win comes 48 years after he won his first Senate race. News of the Biden-Harris victory sparked joyous celebrations nationwide and internationally as well as protest from President Trump’s supporters. Trump currently has a lid on The White House and has not had any press events and reportedly refuses to concede the race. Other members of the Republican party have congratulated Joe Biden including Mitt Romney and former President George W. Bush.

During their victory speeches, Harris and Biden talked about the significance of their victory. Kamala Harris spoke passionately about being the first woman of color to hold the office, but not being the last. She also spoke about the power of Black women. Biden spoke passionately and emphatically about uniting the nation and how everything has a season. Biden also spoke about the work their ticket has already begun, starting with developing their own coronavirus task force.

Biden makes history as the oldest sitting President and the first Catholic. Harris is the first Black woman and the first South Asian woman to win. The spouses of Biden and Harris are also making history with Dr. Jill Biden being the first First Lady to hold a doctorate degree and Douglass Emhoff will be the Nation’s first Second Gentleman.
